Sports Metric of the Week: 10-0 Starts for Patriots, Panthers Bode Well for Postseason Success

Both the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers started out the 2015 NFL regular season with 10 wins and 0 losses, marking the 15th and 16th teams that have accomplished such a start since the 1970 merger.

Since then, the Patriots have dropped two games, while the Panthers are three games away from completing a perfect regular season.

Both teams appear to be the class of their respective conferences, and history shows they have high probability of meeting in the Super Bowl played in Santa Clara, California on February 6th.

Of the previous 14 teams to win their first 10 contests, nine (64.29%) of them reached the Super Bowl, and six (42.86%) of the 14 earned the Lombardi Trophy with Super Bowl wins.
